In the spirit of October being a spoooooooky month, I’m taking on a spooky tag! I was tagged by Cora (of Tea Party Princess fame) to do The Halloween Creatures 2.0 Book Tag, which was created by Anthony at Keep Reading Forward (who also created the original version). If you’d like to see Cora’s post, check it out here!
A Magical Character or Book
Pages and Co – Tilly and the Book Wanderers: Anna James
There’s no magic quite as brilliant as being able to jump into books… right?
The Perfect Book to Read at Night
Sweetpea – C.J.Skuse
Rhiannon does most of her killing at night. It’s the perfect time to read about her evilness!
A Book that Truly Shocked You
Outside – Sarah Ann Juckes
This shocked me in the kind of “I can’t believe would do that” kind of way. This book has stayed with me since I read it. I would recommend entirely. It’s out next year!
A Dark, Evil Character
The Loneliest Girl in the Universe – Lauren James
I don’t know that J is dark and evil, but he’s certainly sinister. The first character who jumped into my head at this prompt!
A Character that Should Never Have Died
Justice for Sirius Black fanclub member here.
A Book that Made You “Hungry” for More
LOL, every book?
Scythe – Neal Shusterman.
I finished that and NEEDED book 2 instantly. I’m saving book 2 for my half term holiday though. It’ll be a WONDERFUL treat.
A Character that You Would Protect at All Cost
But my initial reaction was Twylla from The Sin Eater’s Daughter trilogy (not that she’d need my protection). Also, shout outs here to Amani and Jin (of Rebel of the Sands fame), Matilda and Miss Honey (duh).
A Book that Sucked the Life Out of You
Again… so many. I FEEL a lot of emotions about books.
However, I’m going to go with Countless by Karen Gregory. This book, even now, like months later, still makes me feel SO SAD.
A Book that Still Haunts You
I could go with quite a few books here… there’s a canny few books that I think about for a while after the fact. I’m going to go with Clean by Juno Dawson, purely because Lexi quite often crosses my mind quite often. I was SO CROSS with her at times. There’s some pretty explicit scenes in this book… but so good!
A Book that Really Scared You
I don’t read a lot of scary books, but Northern Lights by Philip Pullman GENUINELY had me (at one point) wanting to put the book down because I was SO SCARED for Lyra.
A Character You Have a Bone to Pick With
Ev from The Light Between Worlds by Laura Weymouth FRUSTRATED the life out of me. I’d love to sit her down and just give her a stern talking to!
A Book You Would Preserve Throughout Time
LOL. Would I even be me if this answer wasn’t predictable? Here… you all know me well enough to know that Matilda would OBVIOUSLY be my answer. But I’d also like to throw a spanner in the works and nominate 1984 by George Orwell.
A Cover too Scary to Look At
The Treatment by C.L.Taylor. That eye in the door peeping through… that’s the kind of thing my nightmares are made of!
The Monster Mash
It’s Fun to Be with Friends on Halloween!
I’m not going to tag anyone, but feel free to take part! Let me know if you do this tag!
